A Generalized Take on GTA5

Having rented this game since the day it came out, I have this to say:

Blatantly sexist overtones, Republican humor, less melee options than IV and being able to do little more than kill civilians round out the things wrong with the game.

Single player's pretty solid, aside from how short it is if you just blaze through it. The world feels fairly detached from you in ways that Saint's Row minimized, and there isn't a whole lot of humor worth laughing about outside of Franklin's homies and Main missions.

----------

Things this game got right are the planning and prep-work involved in performing heists. When you experience it, you'll know and appreciate the authenticity.

Regenerative health and bullet damage. Bullets kill you rather quickly, and health only regenerates half-way.

The shark...

Creator map for Races/Deathmatches. Simple interface once you learn it; a blast if you've got a vision.

Ability to create a girl in multiplayer. Go online for help to make her pretty; trust me - you'll be glad you did.

Basic gun modifications.

Real estate and car modifications/insurance.

-----------

Good game overall and pretty... but it's collecting dust. After single player, it becomes more of the same irreverent Multiplayer 'fetch it' quests or 'shoot this group' missions. Feels as familiar as rampaging on GTA III or Vice City all over again. I'm not a big fan of the Trevor antics (I know a town full of people like he and Wade) and I'm still waiting for multiplayer heists (which may make this game a 7 overall).

If you have a fantasy for acting like a anti social thug, then this game is for you. Other than that, it does not impress me.
